  1. I shot 109 today, and I am not discouraged one bit. You might ask how does a 9 hdcpr shoot 109. The answer is quite simple. I played left handed. This is something I am going to devote some time to over the next few months, since I my left wrist will eventually be my down fall due to previous (non golfing) damage. My right wrist is completely healthy. I always have believed that if I knew in the beginning of taking up this game, what I know now, I would have played left handed from the start.

  2. Read everything you can about "fat shots", and what causes them. My first plan would be to work on a one piece take away to the top of the swing. On the down swing, make sure the head/shoulders do not drop, or that you are not hitting off the rear foot. It's my opinion is that these three, positive moves cures a lot of bad swing points. Main thing is don't get frustrated with the issue. You will eventually learn what you are doing wrong, and start hitting the ball a little cleaner, before the hitting the ground.

  3. Went up to Erie, PA for a lesson today :) Set up adjustment First was adjusting my set up to help me with my backswing and downswing. More axis tilt away from the target at address. Less hands forward at address as well. Feeling: Left hip is bumped out more. Looking at the back of the ball. Butt end of the club is pointing at my belt buckle. Slowly work in a weaker grip. Backswing & Downswing Next was working on my backswing. As @mvmac pointed out in an earlier post. Watch out for that space between my left arm and my chest. Backswin

  4. Any chance you could film some swings and start a swing thread? http://thesandtrap.com/f/4180/member-swings Good place to start would be improving Keys 1 and/or 2 No, your low point is well behind the ball. You can be "steep" and hit thin shots. Good drill for you to understand or exaggerate how to move low point forward without swinging down and across it.

  5. Interesting point. And a good one, too. I'll have to also give some thought to how to politely deal with a group playing that slowly ahead of us in the future as well. We were keeping up with the group in front of us and I have no idea what our who may have been in front of them. We were being careful to give them room before hitting our shots so we didn't hit into them, but we were also getting to our balls and waiting there so as soon as they were clear, we were ready to go. I'll think on that one, as well.[/quote] There's no excuse purposely hitting into anyone. You did the rig

  6. I got in last night, slept for about 5 hours at a hotel room, and got to the course at about 3:45. I'm not sure if I would do the hotel room next time. Kind of a lot of money for how little I got out of it. I was about the 20th car or so in line, and I got maybe the 50th ticket or so. By the time I got to the clubhouse to make my tee time, the earliest foursome time was like 11:30AM. When I saw how far back in the car line I was I was a little worried, but going off as a single was very easy. I was surprised how many people were playing the other courses, though one guy did turn to me and say

  14. Perhaps you don't need a driver at all. I built a club called a "Thriver". The head is made by Acer, is 14 degrees loft, 460 cc and weighs the same as a three wood, so it assembled to three wood length. I put a Graffaloy Pro Custom shaft in it. Easy to hit straight. I am a 63 year old 20 handicap with two herniated discs. I hit it about 200 yards. Total was about $100. Anyone can glue a shaft in a head, trim to length and put a grip on. Look at the Hireko Golf site. Be careful though. You might get addicted to club building!

  15. We are not a democracy and we do not have national votes about things. We used to be a Constitutional Representative Republic. Now we have seemed to descend into a mobocracy fueled by bullying Social Justice Terrorists, and aided and abetted by cowards. It is all ad hoc and orchestrated for political purposes. How else could we explain how one of the campaign symbols used by the liberal party to promote the Clinton-Gore ticket in 1992 become so anathema that now stores cannot even bring themselves to sell it? All the while having no problems with selling things like ISIS flags, Nazi

  16. Nobody is forcing him to do anything. He is choosing to paint over the flag. I have to laugh when I see something like this. I always see people complaining about the country becoming more PC, etc. and claiming that it's infringing upon their rights. Nobody is telling you that you have to be PC. You are still free to say whatever you want, just as you are free to live the consequences of your words and actions. There are a lot of special interest groups I don't agree with, but when the "special interest" is a reflection of the position of the majority, how ca

  17. Keep up what you are doing and ignore what the other folks are doing or saying about their scores. And I strongly disagree with the advice you have been given about ignoring the rules. You will never get better if you are constantly avoiding the challenges of golf rather than embracing them and overcoming them. Every golfer gets to the point where they decide to follow the rules or not follow the rules. Occasional transgressions are one thing (your drop, for example - but next time hit a provisional) but the kind of systematic ignoring of the rules (toss it out from behind those tree

  18. You're right Bubba owns the car and has the right to paint it however he wants. If it was me I wouldn't repaint it. He paid a lot for the car because it's a collectible, ridiculous levels of PC are forcing him to remove the confederate flag and reduce the value the car has as a collectible. At some point we have to stop the craziness of PC, ultimately anyone can be offended by anything and in the days of social media they can foster sufficient support to ban it. What's next banning the display of crucifixes because religious groups are known to be anti-gay and the LGBT community is o

  19. Good for Bubba. I completely agree with Jeremie in regards to people taking this flag thing waaaaay too far though. Take it off the government buildings and state flags, stop selling it at Walmart, etc ... That all makes perfect sense. But removing Dukes from Syndication and crap like that is silly and, I believe, completely unnecessary.

  20. So, it's ok t offend a big section of the population as long as they are black? Let's bring back segregation, Amos n Andy, minstrel shows I'm sure that wouldn't be offensive to a lot of people. This flag might represent heritage to some, but it represents the heritage of people owning other people to some people, as well. If black people say this flag represents racism, then, it does. I have never been a big Bubba fan, but now I am.

  21. Interesting how different people use a wedge (or any club). When mine is in the bag, it's never for a full swing. I do take some pitches where it might come 2/3 of the way back of a normal swing, but it's still a 30 yard shot, tops. And I am not taking a full swing stance. I specifically got it for flop shots around the green where I can make it land really high. Number of shots on my home course where you can hit the land the ball in the higher grass before the fringe to slow it down and still not hold the green. The 64 does help there. And tight bunker shots. First bunke

  26. I've saved countless strokes by leaving my 60 and 64 in the bag the past 3 months...unless they were absolutely needed...which is rare. Anytime I'm 80 to 20 yards and in I'm using SW now. It's just soooo much more reliable then my Lob wedges, and I love my LW's and hit them well. But there's just no denying that amateurs should be hitting them less. When I'm 20 yards and in I'm now almost always using an 8 iron bump and run whereas months ago I'd always deloft my 64. I'd try getting used to using your 64 less and less and only at times when you seriously need it, that only happens for m

  28. How are we defining "gambling problem"? I think in the traditional sense, it means somebody who's gambling beyond their means and isn't able to pay bills/obligations, or is obsessed with gambling to the point that it's interfering with other aspects of their daily life. I don't think we've seen any evidence of the latter, as he keeps busy with golf, charities and plenty of other things. As to the former, Phil's estimated net worth is around $295 million as of this month (according to therichest.com) - he'd have to be hitting it pretty hard to interfere with his ability to pay the bills.

  32. Huh? What would I use for my par 3 tee shots if everybody did that? I agree that I have a lot more issues with unraked bunkers, ball marks on the greens, unfilled divots and cigarette butts left all over the course. Unraked bunkers drive me nuts - that's such basic golf etiquette that anybody and everybody should know it, and it's just plain lazy and slovenly (not to mention rude) to leave a bunker looking like a kid's sandbox.

  33. There's no doubt the fields are deeper in 2014. You've got guys coming left and right out of South Africa, Australia, Europe, and even South America. I think it's really picked up the last 5 years. I don't know if I would say the fields were all that strong around 1995 and 2000, but it's really exploded since '05 with a influx of young talent. I think there's a huge difference between the field in 2014 than say 1997 when Tiger first came on the scene, though. A huge difference. I do not think Tiger wins a Masters by 12 shots or a US Open by 15 with the 2014 field, although he still prolly wins
